This is a complete collection of all 67 volumes of the records of the Tokyo Military Tribunal for The February 26 Incident, which were discovered by the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor's Office and long said to "not exist".
Comprised of 100,000 pages of original documents, the book contains not only documents from each stage of the investigation, preliminary examination, prosecution, and trial concerning those involved in the incident, but also a wide range of other materials including evidence, maps and photographs taken during on-site inspections, and more. In particular, the interview records, which make up the majority of the collection, cover not only politicians, bureaucrats, and military officers who were at the center of the government, but also businessmen, activists, journalists, and civilians.
The collection is searchable by name, subject, date, etc.
